One of the things I’m learning to practice is The Silva Method.  It’s defined as a system that “teaches students specialized guided imagery techniques intended to “rewire” their subconscious and negative programming, tap into their true potential and achieve their goals using a meditation technique and mental training program” (Wikipedia). The first time I tried Silva, I just couldn’t get it. I wanted to  but was having a hard time staying focused. So, I took a few months off and started the system again.

This time I’m getting so much more out of it…but the visualization practices are difficult for me. I’m usually quite visual. I am a photographer, cinematographer and painter. I enjoy creating physical representations of beautiful things, thoughts and people. Why has it been so hard for me to post simple everyday pictures on my mental screen?

I’m sitting here right now with a visualization binaural pulsing in my ears. Before typing this, I tried picturing the number three in my head for a couple of minutes…to no avail. Maybe I’ll try again later. Meanwhile, I continue to press ahead with my training. I am getting something out of it, even without being able to strongly visualize the way the method says I should…and that’s a good thing.

I just hope to eventually be able to get something on that screen.
